Pastes & Purées

Intense Flavor – A Little Goes a Long Way

Culinary Farms’ frozen and shelf-stable pastes and purées are processed in-house to assure greater control over product quality and inventory availability. They deliver true clean label, natural flavor with no adverse aftertaste.

 

Our popular tomato pastes come in two varieties — Sun Dried and Smoked Sun Dried, each delivering intense, rich tomato flavor.

 

Our pure chile pastes and purées are uniquely pungent, made from 100% natural dried Mexican and South American chiles. These pastes enable food service operators and food manufacturers to be on trend with consumer interest in Latin cuisine and chile-flavored foods.

 

The Natural Onion purée delivers all the flavor from fresh onion without tearing!

 

We also offer a spicy, yet savory line of Specialty Pastes and Purées. Add sizzle and wow to almost any food item with Chipotle Adobo, and Sriracha.

 

Pastes and purées are easy to use and blend quickly with other ingredients. A small amount goes a long way when adding these powerfully flavored ingredients. Frozen or shelf-stable, pastes and purées are an excellent ingredient format for bases, soups, sauces, marinades and dressings.

 

Our in-house formulation and processing capability enables us to produce customized pastes and purées to meet a customer’s desired ingredient composition and flavor profile. Give us a call to learn more about custom products and toll processing services.
